Highlights

Happy to announce Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.1.1 which further enhances your filing experience, based on your feedback. In addition, Release 6.1.1 incorporates key points from the most recent GST Council meeting.

Per the law:

     Reverse charge mechanism under section 9(4) of CGST / section 5(4) of IGST Act suspended till 31.03.2018. 

o     By default, Release 6.1.1 does not consider reverse charge liabilities into the returns for purchases from unregistered dealers. Use Enable tax liability on reverse charge (purchase from unregistered dealer) under F11: Statutory & Taxation to consider reverse charge liability.

     No need to pay GST at the time of receipt of advances on sale of goods for taxpayers with turnover up to Rs. 1.5 Cr.

o     By default, Release 6.1.1 does not consider taxes on advances received. For businesses with more than Rs. 1.5 Cr aggregate turnover, use Enable tax liability on advance receipts under F11: Statutory & Taxation to consider tax on advances received.

With Release 6.1.1 you can look forward to

     Better GST billing experience: Specify the discount value for each item in the invoice, and the discount value is considered as part of the assessable value of an item. Cash sales are considered as local sales by default now. Your cash transactions will be much faster and error-free.

     Improved GSTIN validation: Tally.ERP 9 validates the party GSTIN (as required by the GSTN portal) when you create a party or export GSTR-1. This helps avoid invoice rejection on the GSTN portal due to incorrect party GSTIN. 

     Deeper GST insights for your outward supplies: Do more with your GSTR-1 report. The return format view gives you the list of tables in the GSTR-1 return, similar to the view in the offline tool. Drill down from each line to view a replica of what will appear in the GSTN portal. View Summary gives you a nature of transaction-wise view, with an option to detail it out rate-wise for further analysis.

     Better control of round-off mismatches: We have introduced an option in F12: Configure to define the band for round-off limit for mismatches. With this, you can choose to ignore mismatches in tax calculation that occur due to minor round-off differences, up to a specific amount. Fewer mismatches to resolve means lesser work.

     Enhanced GSTR-1 export capabilities

o      If you are using compound units of measurement in Tally.ERP 9, you will be happy to know that you can now map UQC to one of the units of measurement. Therefore, you will have a more accurate HSN summary in your GSTR-1 Return.

o     Option to enable or disable HSN Summary to choose if you want to export or ignore the HSN Summary for GSTR-1 filing.

o     Option to view the HSN Summary by HSN, or description, or both as per your business needs.

o     Now the docs sheet of the exported MS Excel is also filled in with relevant data to give you a complete GSTR-1 e-filing experience. You need to copy the values from the docs and exemp sheets to the GSTN portal.

     While recording a sales invoice in the data migrated from Release 5.x to 6.x, the cursor moved to the Reference field. This occurred if you created a new stock item immediately after selecting the first stock item, or if you changed the invoice date. This issue is resolved.

     We have fixed an issue where the tax amount in the sales invoice was incorrect, as additional expenses were apportioned to both goods and services. This occurred if the sales invoice was created using a foreign currency.

     If a party ledger was not selected in cash sales, all cash transactions appeared as exceptions due to the unavailability of state name and code. Now, the company state name and code are considered for cash sales.

     In a sales invoice, the Rate was calculated incorrectly when the Rate (Inc. of Tax) exceeded the lower limit of the last slab rate defined for the stock item. This issue is resolved.

     When a GST accounting invoice was printed, the tax ledgers also appeared in the numbered format in the Sl.No. column. This issue is resolved.

     We have fixed an issue where the stock item value displayed in the sales invoice was exclusive of tax even if it was set to include tax amount in the item value. This was observed when you selected a nil-rated/exempt stock item first, and then selected the taxable item in the invoice, and if multiple godowns were enabled.

     In export sales, if the party had multiple mailing details, the transaction appeared as an exception in GSTR-1 since state tax and central tax were calculated instead of integrated tax.

     We have fixed an issue where the company's GSTIN/UIN was printed even if Print company's GSTIN/UIN? was disabled in the printing configuration screen. This occurred when the secondary address of the company was selected during printing.

     In an invoice for a stock item predefined with cess Based on Value and Quantity, the cess value was calculated incorrectly if you entered the rate inclusive of tax for the stock item. This issue is resolved.

     We have fixed an issue where the cess value in an invoice was calculated incorrectly if the stock item quantity was entered in decimals. This was observed if the stock item was measured in compound units, and the cess calculation was Based on Value and Quantity.

     In the printed sales invoice, the LUT/Bond No. with more than 5 digits was compressed. This issue is resolved.

     The cess rate was suffixed with the symbol % in the Tax Analysis of a sales invoice for a stock item predefined for cess on quantity. This occurred when a common sales ledger was used, and the option to modify the GST rates in the invoice was enabled. This issue is resolved.

     The option Is ineligible for input credit? did not appear in the GST Details screen while recording the journal voucher. This issue is resolved.

     In a purchase invoice, the expense value was deducted from the assessable value instead of being added to it. As a result, the tax amounts were calculated incorrectly. This occurred if the expense ledger was predefined to apportion the value of goods based on quantity. This issue is resolved.

     While recording transactions with unregistered dealers, the cursor was moving to the GSTIN/UIN field in the Party Details screen. This issue is resolved.

     In a POS invoice, the tax values were not calculated as per the slab rates after entering Rate (Incl. of Tax) for the stock item. This issue is resolved.

     Incorrect quantity was displayed in HSN/SAC Summary of GSTR-1 for stock items using compound units of measurement. This is fixed.

     When the stock items have the same HSN/SAC, description, and unit quantity code, but a different unit of measurement, the details displayed were based on the unit of measurement in the HSN/SAC Summary in GSTR-1. This issue is resolved.
